van cal mentioned that the broader area is a high crime area with double the calls as defined what a high crime area is. and the fact that there is a college nearby. but i don't know if there is residentses for the college as well. the academy of art university. but i do see that you have got yelp reviews and i am looking at see maps to see what else is around you. it does not seem like there is an over concentration of places that sell hard liquor as well. so i mean i would take all of those into consideration besides the opportunity of our colleague. is it district six? >> so it would be supervisor kim's office. >> yes. >> mr. hanna i don't know how much time you will need to do this out reach. i think that it can be done, you know in a very short period of time. so that we can bring it item back and in the near future. so colleagues, could we have a motion to continue to the call of the chair? >> moved. >> so we have a motion to continue to the call of the chair. and again i would encourage you mr. hanna, if i were you after the meeting just stop by supervisor kim's office to se
. >> okay. thank you. >> i just had a question about a potentially controversial issue on the bay shore cal trans station on the san mateo county side and different efforts to look into moving it into san francisco side north and can you talk about that issue? >> sure. so the topic you are talking about is the idea to move that bay short cal trans station north from where it is now into san francisco? and we understand that that is an idea that has been put out there. it has been made pretty clear to us that it's not necessarily and idea that would benefit them and for efforts that are jointly funded and efforts that are looking to what are joint benefits to both counties, we would look at ideas that would jointly benefit the counties. while we understand that that idea is something that san francisco is interested in moving forward with and with the authority staff were interested in finding opportunities to look at that and move that idea forward, we are not going to enter that into joint effort we have with san mateo county to preserve relationships and respect the process that has been
provide those medicare -- medi-cal, excuse me, patients for cpmc from the tenderloin. another is community-based mental health services and again, we have our public health staff here to answer any questions on those. next is the health serve system. so, the term sheet specifies that cpmc will help protect the health service system from premium increases by capping rates for 10 years. this limits premium increases to ensure for hss. and i want to note a typo on the slide. what this should say and what it says in the term sheet is years 1 through 2 at 5% annually. and years 4 through 10 no more than the medical rate of inflation plus 1.5%. so, that should be noted as a 6. moving off of health care to the other set of community benefits that are contained in the term sheet, we start with affordable housing. the term sheet includes two different affordable housing payments. the first is 4.1 million to compensate for 25 units that will be displaced by the construction of the cathedral hill medical office building. and this payment is defined in the planning and the administrative codes. these
the california health benefits exchange and the expansion of the medi-cal program. in addition, the future of health care must emphasize prevention, outpatient and community services, and a comprehensive network of care. our health care delivery systems must focus on managing patient needs across many setting, from primary care to outpatient, inpatient, from routine to urgent, to emergency. our proposed facilities do differ from those for the plans that we developed several years ago, the more modest plans for cathedral hill also reflect our concerns about the affordability of our project due in part to delays that you are all familiar with. what is in front of you today supports cpmc's projected ability to take care of our patients. this plan includes 2 74 beds at the cathedral hill campus, and 120 beds at st. luke's. and as you heard, this represents a 50% reduction at cathedral hill and a 50% increase at st. luke's. the cathedral hill campus which will be our largest campus will be centrally located at the corner of geary and van ness and will continue to be the home for most of our ter
issues. one is that 1500 medi-cal [speaker not understood] that will come from the tenderloin. and everyone, a lot of the seniors that we talk to that i work with are either they don't have health insurance or they are going to be receiving benefits through medi-cal and we want to know and they ask me, how am i going to be able to access this? hospital? how am i going to be able to access the services? one of my tenants was here, he wanted to speak, but had to leave. he is at st. luke's. he lives in the tenderloin and want to see can he go to that hospital. in work force development, there are a lot of folks who i work with who have been out of jobs for a long time and they would like to start working, but getting that -- getting to that pipeline to be able to access a resource to be trained and getting actually placed in the job is another matter. that's a difficult matter. we ask that the supervisors will continue to ask the hard questions and monitoring what would that enforcement community oversight look like many. and lastly i want to say we support the nurses. we want to

, there are two issues, one, there is no cpi assumed for dpis cal year 13 mf 14 for non-profits and two, there is no reduced or cost of doing business increases as a balance strategy throughout this report. the assumption that there is no cpi to non-profits this coming year was made because it wasn't part of the last budget. that's a fantasy, we never had a conversation about this second fiscal year in the two year budget and non-profits are facing the same cost pressures the city is facing, health care costs and inability to give raises, the issues are all the same, we have said repeatedly, if we are part of the solution, then we want to be part of the problem, we need to be in this deficit, secondly, the assumption that there won't be any cost of doing business increases, it costs around 20%. years of double digit health care costs, no raises, the city keeps paying lip service to this issue you tell us we're important, let's do something about it in good faith, let's have the conversation and not shut the door. >> any members of the public who wish to comment on item number 1? okay, s
through cal so she can now teach science in your schools. i made it to foreman by straight dealing and producing quality work that commanded respect. that is my ethic. i think we will produce a quality agreement for you, a functional agreement for you and i think the advocates of local hire are afraid of that because they don't want to give us credit for anything. they want to be able to declare victory and they want bragging rights. that should not be the concern of this district. it should be what works for its students. thank you. >> good evening. i'm here for the same reason -- to formulate a pla that's best for san francisco. i think the disagreement or discussion is how we get there. i represent local 43, fire sprinkler unit. we long to the san francisco building trade and we feel that pla between san francisco unified school district can only come to fruition if that's done through the san francisco building trades because they represent all the building trades. and like the people before me, i just ask that you take that into account. thank you. >> good evening. m

. there's the mtc of which commissioner wiener is on the seat on and as well as commissioner campos in cal trans and others that will come up i am sure that members of the committee might want to propose and within those departments we can probably work with you to figure out who would be the key people to talk to as well. we're 11 member body and there's probably 11 different points of view as well, so i think figuring out how to come up with the consolidated consensus as to the approach and the recruitment profile and other key qualities you want to see in the executive director. there is a lot of work to come up with that consensus and i will be as available as i can be and if you're at 24/7 i will be and other members expressed that interest so i think we have a good relationship to form to help move this along. commissioners? okay. well, thank you for being here. we can check in just after the meeting would be great. >> i would like to take a moment and ask daphne to come up and talk about her experiences. i don't want to hog the mic because it really is a team and i would like y
's the mta to be responsible to meet with cal trans and bart to develop projects. we would invite other interested partners who ma want to coordinate a projector be part of that conversation and also outreach requirements that the sponsors have to take as well as multiple assistants and advisory committee and the board and outreach that will be going on this spring in the summer. so very briefly here is a schedule that is in more detail on page 45 of your packet. the idea that the main work course of this period is may, june, if we are working with you, the project sponsors, a draft prioritization of methodology and we'll come back to you in june or july. at that time we have a board to adopt a state line. they are not required to have prioritization plans and they have a one line item with particular funding. then we have early summer and early fall. if we find we need to, we can extend the schedule. so that sponsors can plan ahead. these are the major capital projects that are in the expenditure plan that will be updated in june. with that i will be happy to answer any questions. this
in conjunction with cal transfollowed for the drive project, there is in essence two state agencies that take a look at a public, private partnership application and one is the public investment, or the private investment, i forget, what it stands for, but it is a function of the transportation secretary's office. and it was a committee that was supposed to review, proposals and make comments. secondarily, the state transportation commission is empowered to authorize a public private partnership in lease and contract. this bill, highens the ability to actually act as an initial hurtle and they have a binding, and the binding ability to reject the public, private partnership proposal before it goes to the transportation commission, we think that is not what the original framers of the particular p3 law intended and it does add an extra burden to the process and we are recommending oppose to that. ab 863 is another one that we are recommending oppose, it seems like it was a measure that we would support but page 7 details that this bill would allow for the delegation of nepa, the national, envi
the contract is for a total of 7 hundred bikes 350 will be in san francisco the rest will be down the cal train corridor so very much a pilot and used to evaluate the benefit of bike share in terms of getting more people on the bikes and out of their car giving people more options how to make short trips in the city. although the time it's taken this pilot up and going i think many other cities have already gone past proofing the concept this pilot program was initial ly meant to be 500 bikes but because of funding constraints it's only 7 hundred but we will be reaching out to our regional partners to see if we can get that number up to a thousand. and look to expand we're very confidence that as every other city that's tried this it will be very successful. the good news is the contract is finally awarded and the bikes should be in place and operational by august so a great big step forward. and then just two items on muni service changes 2 different things we're doing one temporary one permanent the temporary one is an extension of what we did during the christmas and new year holiday. we

that is their plan. it's going to create the problems that cal a brought up there. that's a residential area. the last 3 months that it was open it was so bad that they are carrying guns. trader joes has closed off their parking lots and i hope they do not allow cvs to do that. cvs has also applied for license at another location which is a better area. >> general public comment? seeing none, public comment is closed. >> we'll take a 10 minute break. thank you. >>> planning commission regular hearing for march 14, 2013. we do not allow any out burst and please turn off any mobile phones. we left off -- planning code section 604, signs shall not be treated
. it's been pointed out that traders joe's and cvs are replacing cal an and there are more letters but part of the an allowance that the font should remain the same especially on the historic ones even though the tenants are different. it makes no sense to have a sign for a tenant that is no longer there that confuses public. in fact the other night they were going to an event and they ended up at the gift center because there was an event there years before. it wasn't so much about the signage but they remember going to one a few years before that and it's fairly close to the same place. as far as the appeals process, correct me if i am wrong, but it sounds like there would be an ability for discretionary review and even staff created would there not be? >> no. section 604 a specifically states the planning commission doesn't have the authority to comply with articles 6 with the planning code for signs. there would be an appeal. no one can have a dr before the planning commission but they can -- appeal. >> could staff do that if they thought something was inappropriate? >> it woul
